“take an exciting journey through the past”
Take an exciting journey through the past and discover the dynamic history of Strategic Bombardment at the home of the 2nd Bomb Wing, the mighty 8th Air Force, and the new Air Force Global Strike Command. The Barksdale Global Power Museum is not only a memorial to our successes in battle, but a recognition of the many years spent training to deter war. The peacetime history of Barksdale Air Force Base is as significant as those years at war. Come out and see vintage aircraft like the venerable B-17 and B-24 bombers of World War II; along with their best “Little Friend”, the P-51 Mustang. You can also see Cold War heroes such as the B-52D and B-52G Stratofortress. We will show you the highest and fastest flying jet aircraft ever – the MACH 3+ SR-71 Blackbird. There are many more on display in our air park. Inside, we have six different exhibit galleries that help tell our story.
The museum was a great place to visit for all ages. The tour was very informative and interesting. I learned about the history of the Barksdale Air Force Base and the history of 8th Air Force. There were cool displays inside and lots of planes to see outside.
Was an amazing experience! The gentlemen at the gift shop were knowledgeable, informative and helpful. The exhibits were well done and included some great info. The aircraft outside were impressive, especially with an actual B-52H taking off in the background during our visit.
Not the largest displays inside but a nice display of planes outside. Takes an hour or less. Free to see. Gift shop.
